It has been almost a year now since Brenan received his angel wings. We noticed something was wrong at 3 months. By 6 months it was determined possible Leigh’s. The disease seemed to be progressing little by little. At 9 months it was determined he could no longer breathe on his own. The last of August 2014, he received a trach. He seemed to be doing well until he started having infections. We decided near the end of September to have another MRI to see how much it had changed. By then it had taken over his brain stem. His kidneys were beginning to shut down. His mother had to make a decision no mother ever wants to make. The day before he was to be removed from the machine, Brenan passed away on his own. We miss him every day but know he is no longer suffering. His short life touched so many lives.
